Andrew Bogut evidently plans to do his homework before making a decision.
Bogut, who was traded from the Dallas Mavericks to the Philadelphia 76ers last week, officially was waived by the Sixers on Monday, opening the door for him to join a contender in free agency.
The Cleveland Cavaliers reportedly are considered the favorites to land the veteran center, but he’ll also hold talks with the Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets before choosing his next team, league sources told ESPN’s Marc Stein.
Bogut, who was drafted first overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2005, is in the midst of his 12th NBA season. The 32-year-old averaged 3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in 26 contests with the Mavericks this season, which was his first with Dallas after spending his first seven seasons with the Bucks and his next four with the Golden State Warriors.
Bogut is averaging 10 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game for his career. He was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team in 2015.
